Our Stockings are exceptionally large...
Truly they are the largest stockings I've yet to see in use within my friend group.
I made these 2 when hubby and I were in University and just engaged.
Can you believe he'd never had a stocking?!
Mine is the red and his is the green.
Quite traditional really.
Used the other side of the fabric for the cuff.
I didn't have a lot of extra money and I was just so pleased with the design.
Hubby helped make them.
They are 1 foot across and over 2 feet long.
We used to only fill our stockings as gifts to one another.
We had no price range--if it could fit in the stocking you could buy it!
When Pumpkin came along she was 1 on her first real Christmas so I let her pick from a bunch of fabrics at the store.
Yes I started her fabric love early.
She chose this sparkly pointsettia print but I wanted to add to it.
I found this great feather trim that matched perfectly!
She petted her stocking for half an hour after I finished making it :)
Then our little man showed up.
Pumpkin chose the fabric for his stocking too.
Since his fabric didn't have any glitz to it,
I thought some sparkly sequin trim was in order.
So now, our stockings are done.
When I looked around blog land I noticed all these great stocking posts and wished I could make another.
Well, next Christmas I will have a new stocking post,
because in July we will welcome stocking # 5 to the roost of stockings!
